Food Donations Needed For 30 Rabbits Saved From Hoarding Situation In Central New York
Donations are needed for 30 hungry rabbits saved from a hoarding situation in Otsego County.
The Susquehanna SPCA located on Route 28 in Cooperstown recently took in nearly 30 rabbits from an overwhelming hoarding situation in Otsego County. They are currently working with T.H.E Rabbit Resource and the SPCA of Tompkins County to get the rabbits out of the shelter and into homes as soon as possible. In addition, they are asking the community for food and bedding donations.
We would be extremely grateful for donations of greens, carrots, and rabbit bedding. Donations can be dropped off at or mailed to 4841 State Highway 28 Cooperstown, NY 13326. #donate #SQSPCA [Susquehanna SPCA]
T.H.E. Rabbit Resource, an all-volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to rescue, adoption, and education on the proper care of domestic rabbits.
All the rabbits must be spayed/neutered before being adopted as New York State Senate has passed S. 4234-A, the New York Puppy Mill Pipeline Bill. This prohibits the sale of dogs, cats, and rabbits in pet stores across New York State.
Hoarding cases are more common than you may think. CNY SPCA says many of their cases are hoarding-related. For example, in February 2020, they seized 25 cats from home in Onondaga County. In March of 2020 (right after the NYS lockdown), they seized 50 cats from one home in Oneida County. In October 2020, 102 rabbits were seized along with a pigeon in Oneida County. In September and October 2020, 30 dogs were seized from a home in Oneida County.
Again, donations of greens, carrots, and rabbit bedding are needed now at the Susquehanna SPCA and can be dropped off at or mailed to 4841 State Highway 28 Cooperstown, NY 13326.
